Script, layouts and color by Olivier Vatine, and artwork by Alberto Varanda channeling Franklin Booth, all come together in this graphic masterpiece. Vatine combines The War of the Worlds, Frankenstein and a mad scientist trying to resurrect the dead to create a gothic sci-fi graphic novel with plenty of juicy visual elements to drool over.

From the publisher:

Can science conquer death? And if so, at what price?

Joachim, a young scientist carrying out prohibited research, is kidnapped by a powerful and mysterious woman recluse on the old Earth: Martha. To recover from the tragedy that has been haunting her for months, she is ordering the impossible: to resurrect her daughter, Lise, who made a fatal fall during an archaeological excavation. Joachim, who sees an opportunity to continue his work with complete freedom, accepts this role of creative father. After recovering the necessary material thanks to Martha's fortune, he then embarks on this experience that may well prove irreversible. Because we do not give impunity life to Death...

With this complete 72-page story, Alberto Varanda makes his return with probably his greatest graphic masterpiece. On a screenplay and layouts by Olivier Vatine, he delivers a work with an epic magnitude as well as extremely meticulous, which evokes as much the engravings of Gustave Doré as Jules Verne, Lovecraft and Schuiten together!


La science peut-elle vaincre la mort ? Et si oui, à quel prix ?

Joachim, un jeune scientifique menant des recherches prohibées, est enlevé par une puissante et mystérieuse femme recluse sur l'ancienne Terre : Martha. Pour se remettre du drame qui la hante depuis des mois, celle-ci lui ordonne l'impossible : ressusciter sa fille, Lise, ayant fait une chute mortelle lors de fouilles archéologiques. Joachim, qui voit là une opportunité de continuer ses travaux en toute liberté, accepte ce rôle de père créateur. Après avoir récupéré le matériel nécessaire grâce à la fortune de Martha, il se lance alors dans cette expérience qui pourrait bien s'avérer irréversible. Car on ne redonne pas impunément vie à la Morte.

Avec ce récit complet de 72 pages, Alberto Varanda signe pour son retour probablement son plus grand chef-d'oeuvre graphique. Sur un scénario et un story-board d'Olivier Vatine, il livre un travail d'une ampleur aussi épique qu'extrêmement minutieuse, qui évoque autant les gravures de Gustave Doré que Jules Verne, Lovecraft et Schuiten réunis!
